Summer 2023 HEV Light

HEV light, also known as blue light, is a type of high-energy, short-wavelength light that is emitted by electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. While many people are aware of the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, the potential impact of HEV light on the skin is less well-known. Research has shown that exposure to HEV light can lead to a range of skin problems, including premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation. This is because HEV light can penetrate deep into the skin, damaging the collagen and elastin fibers that support the skin’s structure and elasticity.

One of the most noticeable effects of HEV light on the skin is the development of hyperpigmentation. This is because HEV light can disrupt the production of melanin.Over time, this can lead to dark spots and uneven skin tone, particularly in areas that are frequently exposed to electronic devices.

In addition to hyperpigmentation, HEV light can also cause inflammation in the skin. This can lead to redness, sensitivity, and even acne breakouts. Inflammation can also exacerbate existing skin conditions such as rosacea and eczema. Perhaps most concerning is the impact of HEV light on the skin’s aging process. Research has shown that exposure to HEV light can accelerate the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. This is because HEV light can damage the collagen and elastin fibers that support the skin’s structure, leading to a loss of elasticity and firmness.

While it may be difficult to avoid HEV light entirely in today’s digital age, there are steps you can take to minimize its impact on your client’s skin. One of the most effective ways is to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF rating. Encouraging your clients to invest in healing skincare products that contain ingredients such as niacinamide and vitamin C, which have been shown to help mitigate the effects of HEV light on the skin. 

Educate your clients on the effects of HEV light on the skin, including yperpigmentation, inflammation, and premature aging.
